This is the one I'm looking at.
I guess it does make sense to just wait until Monday and see if I can catch anything.

the only thing this one has going for it is that only xfx and sapphire are giving BF4 with the 280X. otherwise, the MSI gaming and Asus DC2T versions are the best ones to choose from. very cool and quiet running cards. from what I hear from owners of this model, xfx made a dumb design on this and the shroud gets in the way of most crossfire connectors, so if you ever think of dual 280X's consider that possible inconvenience..

Yeah I see what you're talking about after reading some more reviews. Thanks, I'll look into those two.

It's probably not going to drop in price. Just be aware that the R9 cards run pretty damn hot. They're designed to run at 90 degrees Celsius, which won't hurt the card, but will be blowing awfully hot air on your other components.

Except the operating temperature has nothing to do with how much heat the card is putting out, and that the reference blower cooler exhausts air out of the back of the case.
